Looks like your car may have had the "cornering lamp" option. When you turned on your signal a bright light would light up on that side of the car to see curbs and such.


I'm not sure on the numbers (maybe PHS does though) but you don't see them very often.

I agree, it looks like a fender for cornering lamp. If I remember correctly a Grand Prix uses the same cornering lamp, maybe other Pontiac as well. If I had to guess that will be a hard part to find. I have seen them come up for sale on ebay before. Good luck

Looks to me someone added those cornering lamps. Early '68 GTOs had cornering lamps. But, it was just an extra bulb in the turn signal assembly. Later '68 GTOs only had one bulb. Not sure what month of the transition.

EDIT: After further reasearch, I came up with this. Like the OP, I don't see anything in the PHS doc where it was a GTO option. Read below the pic:

The one/two bulb signal assembly info is correct. I have two...

EDIT: Even tho I still don't see cornering lamps in the PHS doc, I see them as an option in another manual that I have. It is option code 651. No idea why it's not listed in PHS.

Given your build date, you probably have 2 bulbs. You may be able to see them thru the lense, or, just pull the lense and see if you have 2 bulbs/sockets.

What did they hi-lite for your engine option if anything as 5, like you said, is not an option?

PM me, have some 68 cornering lamps that might fit. Measure your openings so I can check mine.

The 5 in column 34 is the standard 400 4bbl. The 1,2,3 and 4 do not apply to a GTO. The 6 is the economy 400 2 bbl. and the 8 is for the RA option. As you said those numbers are options.
